It was a Friday in beginning of November. Enny was losing his patience as he hasn’t gotten close to Maheera, they only get to see during basketball practice where he couldn’t talk to her. He still fears that he won’t be able to do this and it won’t be good for him. His mind wasn’t on the practice as he couldn’t concentrate.“Enny!” the coach yelled. “Out now, what is wrong with you?” he asked as Enny walked to a bench and sits down.Maheera’s crush on Enny was getting too much. She couldn’t believe he wouldn’t talk to her. He is the only guy who doesn’t find her attractive enough. Even though she feels like being friends with Enny will mean betraying Rasheed’s friendship. She wasn’t supposed to like Enny at all but what can she do. She heard the coach sending him out so she decided to stop playing too just so she could sit with him probably he will talk to her today.A girl on the team bounced the ball trying to dribble Maheera, intentionally Maheera slipped her foot which landed her on the court’s floor. She gave out a fake cry holding her ankle as a fake tear slid down her left cheek.“Are you okay?” the girl asked as she quickly bent down to help her up.
The coach rushed to the spot holding the first Aid kit.She nod her head as the girl helped her up “I think it’s my ankle” she said “Can you stand on the leg?” coach asked“I can try” she said as she saw Enny standing beside her with concern written on his face. Yes, its working she thought. She tried to walk and gave a soft whimper. “Ouch! It hurts”“Enny, help her to the bench. Massage her ankle with this balm” Coach instructed.He placed his arm around her shoulder as he helped her to a seat. He couldn’t help than to be thankful to heaven for been on his side. He will definitely talk to her today.Maheera felt a jolt of electricity run through her body as he touched her. She didn’t know her plan will work so much. “I can really be an actress with my acting” She thought to herself. She gave a soft whimper as he helped her gently to a seat.“Sorry, after the massage the pain will go down a little” he said.Maheera’s heart flutter at his voice, it is a deep baritone voice that fits his personality so well. She watched him grab a chair. He sat opposite her and brought out a balm from the first Aid kit. She watch him lift her leg gently and place it on his laps, he applied the balm and rubbed gently.
Maheera felt a whirlwind of emotion surge through her entire body. She couldn’t believe it, it was a dream where she never wants to wake up. His warm palms against her skin and she feels her body relax under his touch. She was betraying Rasheed by getting a massage from his enemy, not really enemy but who cares right now. If he could feel what she was feeling right now he would never blame her.She watched him as he packed the kit and return it to its position. Her heart was gladdened but now that he left what next? She was still on the thought when practice finished. Coach walked up to her “Maheera take care of your ankle” he said. “You’ll be fine before tomorrow”“Thanks Coach” she replied.Enny was delighted but now that practice is over they wouldn’t have chance to talk again cause he was sure Rasheed will be waiting for her as usual. He rushed out so he could get her contact before she leaves.“Lemme help you get to Rasheed so you can go home and relax.” He offered so he could get to talk to her“Hmm, I asked him not to wait up whenever I’m having practice so he already left” she said as she fiddled with the hem of her wear Enny feels his heart gladdened at the new development but he didn’t show it. “Then how will you get home”Maheera noticed the concern written on his face. “It’s okay, I’ll go get a bus, please just help me get to the school gate” she said “or I can just give you a ride” he stutters.“If you don’t mind” he quickly added.
Maheera wanted to do her victory dance all around the court. Other students watch them as they leave the court. “Oh, I don’t wanna stress you” she quickly shake her head but praying he doesn’t answer her“Come on stop it, I can’t leave you like this” he said as he helps her up.They went to her locker where she picks her home work and then to Enny’s car where his driver awaits patiently. “Where do you stay?”“Kuti Estate” she replied“wow!” he exclaimed. “That isn’t far to my area, I stay at Igbayi Esate” he said with a smile, heaven was on his side.“We’ll drop her at Kuti Estate before going home” he told his driver who nodded in response.
The drive to Kuti Estate was quiet as no one said anything in the car. Getting to her house which was a very beautiful bungalow painted white and blue. Enny quickly got down and helped her with her school bag.Maheera felt bad as he hasn’t asked for her contact, he was just been nice and it hurts that he didn’t find her attractive to want to make friends with her. “Thank you so much” she said lowly as she turns to her gate.“Maheera” she heard her name been called in a subtle manner she has never heard it been called before.“Can I have your contact, I might wanna check up on you during the weekend” he said as Maheera’s heart did a merry dance.“Okay. No problem” she said as she called it out to him. He watched her limp into her house and locked the gate. He jumped up with happiness while his driver just laughed.“Step one accomplished”

Maheera hurriedly put away the bucket she used mopping the whole house. She went to the backyard and put away the mop and buckets after turning the used water away. The aroma of fried rice and roasted chicken filled the house. She tipped toe gently to avoid falling on the wet floor as she sings along to Nickkie Minaj’s song Pills and Portion playing from the headset around her neck. It was an old song but she loves it a lot. Maheera is a music lover and her passion for theatre is so strong no one can actually comprehend.She separated the clothes from the washing machine and folds the one that needs folding. She only does minor laundry and uses washing machine. Their laundry is usually done by the laundry man who comes home to pack it and returns them afterwards. Even though Ayeesha her step mother doesn’t like her she doesn’t stress her with stuffs except house chores which Maheera knows is mandatory for every girl to know how to do. After putting the clothes away into the appropriate places she walks to the kitchen. She picks up the food flasks as she sets the dinning table. She dished the security man’s food into a smaller food flask as she likes to give him excess because he is actually a very good man. “Uncle Segun here’s your food” she smiled as she puts the flask and bottled water in front of his door.The young man smile gratefully as he continues wiping the car he was washing. “I trust you. The aroma alone got me thinking I’m in a cuisine”“Eh Eh uncle Segun can flatter somebody ehn” she said shaking her head and laughing as she walks back inside. “Sha thank you like that, I’ll manage even though it’s flattering”“See you, one day you will know how good a cook you are” he replies seriously“Hmm, Ese o, Adupe” she replies in her dialect.She met her family already at the dinning table. Food has been dished out by Ayeesha. She drags a chair backwards to sit.“What do you want to do?” Ayeesha asks her with a disdain“I want to have breakfast” She replies lowly “Looking like that?” her father and two siblings look at her with confusion.
She was dressed in a pink bum short and yellow underwear although she had little oil on her underwear and her bum short was damp from water but she wasn’t looking bad either“But mummy Maheera is looking good.” Matin said“And shut your mouth before I shut it for you” she eyed her son“Ayeesha don’t start this morning, just leave the girl alone” Amin said glaring at his wife“She isn’t sitting on my table looking like that” Ayeesha replied adamantly glaring at Maheera in return“You’ve practically done nothing this morning other than bath yourself and Mahaada. Look at yourself looking all glam early morning waking up to breakfast and not allowing the poor girl not to have her meal” Amin yelled at his wife. Maheera shot her head up not liking where this was going as it won’t be good for her.“Amin!” she yelled. “How dare you talk to me like that because of her?” She yelled pointing a finger at Maheera. Her look already changed like she was going to cry. “She’s not a maid she’s my daughter and its better you start seeing her as yours too” he hissed and continue his food.Maheera watch as Ayeesha stood up and left for her room. She knew her dad was just standing up for her but he his only making it worse. He will leave for Port Harcourt on Monday and won’t return until Friday leaving her with her step mum again. She knows one of the reasons for her hatred was the closeness between her and her father but if Ayeesha had been nice after she got married to Amin she would have love to be closer to her, hanging together, attending functions and doing things together but that will only be in her next life.She chew on the chicken in her mouth while Ayeesha comes out holding two luggages. Her two siblings gave her a peck in turns as they say their goodbyes. They spend their weekends at a family friend’s place, leaving every Friday evening and returning on Sunday. Amin and Ayeesha would pick them on Sunday from there they hangout as a family excluding Maheera that’s why her dad dedicates Saturdays to hangout with her so she wont feel out of place. They should have left a day before but mummy Idris who is there mother’s friend got home late yesterday.
Maheera lay on her bed watching a movie on her laptop, one of the numerous birthday gifts she got from dad. Her door creaked open as her dad peeps in “What ya doing?” He asked with a smile“Re watching Barbie fairytopia”“Gosh Wurami you ain’t Mahaada’s age” he laughs“Dad it’s interesting” she whines“So whatsup” he sat down on the stool facing his daughter. She has changed into loose shorts and top after taking her bath.“Nothing much” she shrugs. “Sorry about the other time baby”“Its okay dad” she cuts her dad. “Sometimes just overlook some things. I know you’re only trying to stand up for me but you cant keep fighting mum cos of me. She’s your wife” she said“I know but why does she keep doing that?” he said confusedly. “You’ll end up hating her and me if I just watch” he explainsMaheera smiles “I can’t hate her cause she’s my mum. And what makes you think I’ll ever hate you too dad. You guys are the best thing that has ever happened to me” she said and watches her dad’s face morphed into disbelief. “You, mum, Matin and Mahaada are all I have. I love those kids as much as they love me too so dad stay out of it. Please dad” she placed her palms together
“How can you be so intelligent. You’ve got everything from your mum” he said as his face morphed into sadness, the pain radiates so much that Maheera moved closer to her dad and pets him. She had learnt not to ask about her mother at a very tender age. She had asked her dad when she was five years old and that was the first time she had seen him in an uncontrollable tears.
She asked again twice or thrice and got the same reply so she stopped asking.She is a product of teenage pregnancy because her father had her when he was just eighteen years old. Ayeesha had once insulted her of been a bastard, an unwanted child so she feels she is not just a product of teenage pregnancy but of also an unwanted pregnancy. Her mother had died during two days after giving her life so she said Amin had no choice than to take the child since they both have no families. That is the story her dad told her after asking if she was really an unwanted child. He said if he had not denied her at first she might not die reasons for the tears whenever Maheera asks about her mother. He felt he had killed her.“Why don’t you go over to Rasheed’s house for the weekend?” Amin asked suddenly. He watches as his daughter’s face lit up immediately. “So you don’t you feel lonely and Maleek is also home”“Dad you’re the best” she jumps down from the bed and skips to her closet and grab a small bag and started selecting clothes.Amin is amsazed at how happy she is and couldn’t stop smiling. “Wait are you dating Rasheed?” he asks confused.“No dad” she pouts. “Why will you even say that?”
“No you’re just too happy and I’m just curious” he shugs“Come on dad don’t be like that. Wait don’t you like him” she asks as realization dawns on her.“Of course I do. But you’re not allowed to have a boyfriend till eighteen years” he said as he watches her shrug. “Do you understand?” he said sternly“Yes dad” she said lowly. After packing up her bag she notices she actually forgets to call Rasheed to inform him but she knew she will be welcome but to be on the safer side. She picks her phone after her dad goes to change his wears so he can drop her at the Raheems.“Hey my Gold” Maheera blushes at what he calls her”“Dad said I could come spend the weekend with you guys so can i?”“You can’t” Rasheed replies rather harshly“I can’t?” Maheera asks as her heart sank down“You can’t” he repeated.
